Nature Conservation Mornings for Young People
Dec 9 - 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Come and join us for our next Nature Conservation Morning for young people at Nosterfield Nature Reserve.
During this session we will be clearing up after recent tree cutting work in the woodland around Nosterfield Quarry. The brash and logs will be used to create dead hedges & log piles which will create homes for invertebrates, small mammals, birds and reptiles. The work in the woodland has been carried out to open up densely planted areas, creating open glades to encourage wildflowers and provide food for pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
You’ll get to work with hand tools, learn about wildlife & woodland ecology AND have fun!
- The event is taking place on Saturday 9th December 2023, from 10am – 1pm
- This event is for 14-18yr olds, but parents can accompany children if they wish
- Gloves & equipment will be provided
- We’ll have a tea break mid-morning, so bring a thermos or other drinks if you want them
- Wear sensible footwear, clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and a waterproof if rain is forecast
